Tarzan the Ape Man

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1954. Vintage one sheet poster for the 1954 re-release of the 1932 film. Distributor rubber stamp on the verso.

The first of Weissmuller's twelve Tarzan films, and the first appearance of Cheeta, Tarzan's chimpanzee friend. In this variation of the much-adapted Burroughs tale Tarzan and Jane fall in love, and although Jane desires to take him back to England, when Jane's father James Parker dies on the expedition Jane remains behind in the jungle instead.

Set in Africa, shot on location in California and Florida.

26.5 x 41 inches (67.25 x 89 cm), folded three times as issued. Very Good plus, with pinholes and a few tiny tears, brief smudging.
